Transcript DAMASCUS. 427 A f Syria" (Isaiah vii. 8), yet one of the finest and most remarkable sights in the East is f the Haj, or pilgrims, collecting in the plain outside of the city, and forming in a long 'on bound for the tomb of the Prophet. Three days south of Damascus— at a place II A Mazarib, where water and grass are abundant—a halt is made, and the caravan nized. jjie holiday part of the pilgrimage ends here, since those who go on from this must address themselves to the real hardships and dangers of the desert. The journey GRAND COLONNADE, PALMYRA, FROM THE TRIUMPHAL ARCH. Showing the syenite columns of the Tetrapylon ; the prostrate one is thirty feet long and three feet in diameter. In the distance the ancient city wall, known as the Wall of Justinian, can be traced. occupies no less than twenty-seven days, and 1- attended with many hardships. When the roads are bad, owing to heavy rains, many of the animals die, and the pilgrims themselves suffer. At intervals, along the e, garrisons are stationed to prevent the caravans from being plundered, and to render such ier aid as may be required. As the pilgrims are not only devout men, but are interested trade as well, they carry with them many rich articles, and bring back, on their return, andise of various kinds, together with a considerable number of female slaves. Hence, iar temptations to plunder are offered to the wild Arabs, which they resist only through me I urkish troops, or because of a contract made beforehand, in which they receive presents, that they will not molest either the persons or property of these " holy men."
